  1. The Secret to Sexy Curves is a 19 minute video about how to use the pen tool in Affinity Designer. I share the secrets to a perfect sexy curve and together we cover everything you need to know to successfully use the pen tool to create your own sexy curves. This is a great video for both beginners and intermediate users. You’ll learn how to join lines, add and delete nodes, determine the perfect placement for a node, and how to use and adjust the control handles. I’ll show you the shortcuts to moving in and around your artwork, and we’ll even set your mouse up to zoom in and out as you work with the pen tool. In no time at all you’ll be an expert user of the move, node, pen, and view tools. Join me in exploring the versatility of using the pen tool for all types of drawings: perspective, graphic designs, illustrations, fantasy, manga, cartoons, silhouettes, and literally anything you can trace with the pen tool. Using the pen tool is considered a core skill in creating digital media. Take your time, practice, and you’ll find it becomes easier every day. I’ve had a great time creating this video for you. If you like it - if you learned something - please show a bit of appreciation by subscribing to my channel. It really does make a difference. Feel free to leave comments, suggestions for future videos, and don’t be shy; go ahead and share your art with us. :-) Thanks for watching, & Happy Creating.

  2. Hello, I am new here so I suppose the best thing to do is introduce myself and let you all know what my topic is about. To begin, I am a professional landscape and nature photographer. I create HDR composites that I sell through stock agencies and also in local art galleries in Sedona and Jerome AZ. For many years I used Photoshop CS5, and it did what I needed done as far as image manipulation and editing. But a short time ago my old MacBook running Lion OSX failed. The GPU in the logic board burned out and I got the white screen of death. I wanted to get it fixed but the parts were no longer available, which forced me to buy a newer Mac running High Sierra 10.13.3. PS CS5 does not work well on High Sierra. It would not update and it often crashed with errors. Adobe technicians told me that CS5 had never been tested on High Sierra and probably would not work. They advised me to get creative cloud, but I told them I was not going to rent a program. I only buy programs with perpetual license. I found Affinity Photo while searching for CS5 alternatives. I have been testing Affinity for the last couple of days and so far I am impressed. It has many of CS5's capabilities, but the controls will take me some time to get used to. I will probably end up buying the program when the trial period is over. But there is one thing that does need improvement with Affinity. It need support for the JPEG2000 format. I have several hundred images stored in that format and Affinity cannot open them. I use the JPF format to archive my master copies after all editing is finished. I put them in a folder with the original camera raw copy. The reason I used this format is because it supports LAB 16 bit color, just like a TIF, but has lossless compression and has half the size of a TIF. This format is also being used in some video applications. Since Photoshop supports JPEG2000 I think Affinity should consider supporting it as well if your company wants to compete with Adobe on their level. I can use another program called ColorSync to convert my old JPF files back to TIF but that might degrade their quality. So if you are considering adding JPF support to Affinity please let me know. And if you're interested in seeing some of the work I do here is a link to one of my portfolios. The images on this site are being marketed through Getty Images. My HDR lightning composites are my biggest sellers. http://www.roomtheagency.com/profile/555/ Thanks for listening.
  3. Sorry, but please correct this embarrassing error here: “Aber er wollte etwas erschaffen, dass die Messlatte für kreative Designsoftware deutlich höher legen würde.” □ “16 Bit” would be better than “16 Bits” there and please stop using wrong/inconsistent dashes on the same website like here and please no wrong quotation marks like there.
  4. I learn best by personally trying out what I see in tutorials. Where can I download the image used in the tutorial, (see link below). Thanks. https://vimeo.com/channels/affinitydesigner
  5. Hello everybody i have been recently having problems with saving projects. So i made a banner art which is 3840x2160 and while working on it the resolution was fine. However when i exported it to Png and Jpeg the resolution scaled down all the way 1632x918 pixels for both image formats and i have no idea why it's happening I have included screenshot so you can see what i'm talking about. Hope the issue can be fixed
  6. hi Guys, my system: Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.3, AP vers. 1.6.8 Can not load an image in finder with "Open with" (Öffnen mit) if AP is already open. If AP is not already open then AP will be opened and the image loaded. This problem is only after the update from version 1.5.x to 1.6.8 Anyone have an idea? Have long researched in the net, with no results. You are my last hope! Thanks Brahm PS. Also, when AP is open, it is no longer possible to "drag and drop" a photo onto the icon to load the image. ...and sorry for my english, it's not my native language.
  7. Hello all. Does anyone know how to get a shape fill with an image? Once I could do it but I do not remember how ... Regards
  8. Hello. After the update 1.6.7 in Affinity, I cannot seem to resize an image how I used to with the Move tool in the Photo section. Normally I would be able to select the six points around the image and resize it with moving my finger, however whenever I attempt it now on it just moves the image in the direction I move my finger. I am not sure if this is a bug or you just moved this ability to another tool, however if this is an issue hopefully you can get this fixed. If this isn’t a bug and it’s just been given to another tool, please may you inform me of that if that’s the case. Thank you
  9. Hello, it could be nice to be able to change more options for image export, in export persona. For example I have the slices selected I could love to be able to change dpi on the spot (for example I design something for print and I want to export a lower resolution preview), being able to change resolution with some image preview could be nice as well, I mean I could love to see the compression loss on the spot. Just my 2 cents, thanks!
  10. Howdy. I'm working on graphics for an Antique Dollhouse that need to be printed full size. I'm using an outside printing service for my color graphics and have exported the files in PDF and JPEG format, for ease of transportation. Unfortunately, in doing so, the actual size of the images reduces, the length by about 1/8 inche and the width by about 1/16 inch. Since the printing service does not have Affinity Design, I have to export to something that they can print from. Anybody else notice the reduction when exporting and fix the problem? Thanks, Keith
  11. Hi, Does anyone know of a tutorial around on creating image brushes?... One similar to the preset clothing zipper brush? I.e. as in the image supplied. I've had a hunt around for some help on this but no joy finding anything. Cheers guys, H
  12. Hi there, I'm working on a PDF with a VERY complicated logo that seems to have been created with about 400 little bits - is there a way of grabbing the whole logo and deleting it, rather than from the layers panel doing one piece at a time? I might be being dense - but any help with this appreciated! I've attached a screen grab to show you what I mean . . . THANKS.
  13. I just went to replace an image on an AD document and noticed this new option for Embed/Link. I haven't seen this mentioned on any changelogs - have you accidentally pushed out the feature too early? I also noticed images I tried to rename on my computer were throwing up an error because the file was 'already open in Affinity Designer', so it seems to be working.
  14. Dear all, in Potoshop I could use 'Replace content' for a image in a layer to replace an transformed and positioned image. So new image will get same transformation and positioning as the prevoius one. Just image content is replaced. Is there any similar in Affinity photo? Explanation: I have several layers. In the bottom layer I want to replace the image with another image of same size. How can I easily replace that? This step I need multiple times. I need to replace that single image and print the document, then replace the image again and print the document and so on. Thanks...
  15. HI! I'm trying to use Apply image on iPad but I have unexpected results. First of all, how I can select another layer as source? In Desktop version I have to drag the layer on the Apply Image filter's box. (Why not to show all layers in the list???) Here on iPad it doesn't work. I didn't find any way to make it works. And I made a macro on Desktop version, doing something like this. Of course, it works with every single images. If I import that macro on iPad, I have very odd result. Something doesn't work at all on iPad with Apply Image.
  16. When placing round images on this u shaped path it distorts the images shape. The distortion also occurs on square and rectangle paths. It works fine for individual lines and circles.
  17. Hi folks, I would like to insert a freely composed image in another picture wiith the perspective projection feature on iPad Air 2, newest app version. Unfortunately I've been not successful after tying for one or two hours. When I mark an area with the perspective projection function and zoom in with the hand tool, I can draw freely and everything works fine after tapping perspective projection again. But this does not work with objects like pasted images or rectangles whose always get inserted in new layers. When I group the layers and rssterize them to one I am not able to reset the zoom mode. Is there any possibility for doing that in the iOS version? I wish you a beautiful snowy Advent Sunday!
  18. Second day into using AP. (On a tablet enviroment) Looked around re my question which is “Finger rotate canvas / image” At best i can use the select image at the top is a handle use this to rotate image. What i wish to do is be able to pinch zoom in and out with the fingers, this works great thank you, now I like to rotate the image with the fingers please on an ipad, similar to say procreate. Can this be done ? If so how and if not can this be implemented in the near future up dates please. Regards Rob
  19. Affinity Is The Best of All...But it would be good if we could edit & compose motion image like GIF...Can we get this in future update...!? :^) or I'm just pushing You guys in trouble...!!! :^(
  20. Why can't I just save an image as either TIFF, PSD or even JPG after the Develop Persona. Why this complicated Export Persona? Adobe at least got that right. This is a struggle every time. I'm sorry but I'm giving up on this.
  21. Usually.I make my subtitle sequence by Photoshop.Now....I almost give up PS.But now I want to make subtitles.In photoshop. image-variables-define-next-import(text files)-ok,then file-export-data set as files Is there any functions like these in affinity photo or affinity designer?
  22. How do you convert an image to an icon in Affinity Designer?
  23. We need a way to use black and white images as a Layer Mask. I am trying to use some grain/noise images as a matte, but my final image needs an alpha channel. Currently, I have to use PS to convert my BW images to an image with an alpha channel to use. The workflow isn't very convenient. I have attached the type of image that I would like to use as a Layer Mask. You can see that creating a selection from the image would be impossible.
  24. Hello, Bug screen : Picture is not displayed in full screen. Whether zoom or not
  25. This seems a little too basic to have to ask, but the Help system is not helping. I have an image that I want to rotate a few degrees prior to doing some perspective correction. The Help entry says I can grab "rotation handles" but all I see are a blue outline with blue X's at the corners and midpoints. When I try to "display rotation point" I get nothing. None of the shift type keys have any effect. Is this one of those "can't get there from here" features that I seem to run into on occasion? Thanks!
